This site is full of free origami instructions and ideas based on the art of Japanese paper folding.

This site is also all about taking your origami to the next level:  You've folded a beautiful flower, animal, bird, whatever.  Now what do you do with it?  You'll find lots of ideas on this site!  All of them from fellow folding enthusiasts.
